Residents get the hump over road repairs BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

An “oversight” by the city’s main road repairer has left a Woolston intersection with a new wastewater system – at the expense of a speed hump. Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team workers were laying new wastewater pipes in Keswick St and Sullivan Ave. But on completion, some residents noticed the paved speed hump at the intersection of the two streets had not been reinstated properly. Now motorists see the sign which indicates there is a hump and to slow down, but the road is basically flat. Sullivan Ave resident Giora Dan said he noticed the hump was missing immediately after the work was completed about eight months ago. “It looks beautiful, the bricks are well laid, but it’s just not elevated.” He had spoken with the city council and SCIRT but nothing had come of it. “It’s really annoying because I don’t think it would cost much to do it properly. It seems to just be

done and not done properly.” He said the majority of the families living on Sullivan Ave had young children and it was important for vehicle speed to be controlled. Keswick St had been narrowed, and had paved speed humps installed at each end before the earthquakes to stop people speeding. Mr Dan said the whole community had come together to get the changes made. “When we moved in it was obvious speed was an issue with cars.” A SCIRT spokeswoman said following the work, the hump was not raised as high as it had been previously. “This was an oversight.” The city council is now monitoring the traffic at the intersection to decide if it is necessary to raise the platform further, or to put other speed-calming measures in place, she said. Councillor Yani Johanson said if it had happened in Woolston, it could have happened in other parts of the city. “It’s not a funny situation, but it is funny if you look at the sign.”

Stolen scooter at centre of hall fire BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

A fire which significantly damaged a wall and the roof of an old Spreydon hall may have been started by a stolen step-through motor scooter. Four fire trucks were called to the blaze at Coronation Hall, on Domain Tce, at about 5am on Thursday. Fire investigators were on the scene on Thursday morning for an hour and half to determine the cause. Fire risk management officer Mark Thomas said the fire was believed to be suspicious. He said the blaze started on the outside of the building, where a small step-through motor scooter was leaning up against the southern side. The step-through motor scooter had been stolen from an ad-

dress nearby earlier in the night, he said. Mr Thomas said he could not release any details of how the scooter may have caused the fire. The city council owned hall, which was built in the early 1900s, had significant damage to a wall and the roof but the inside was fine, Mr Thomas said. “It’s been there for a long time and we haven’t got that many old buildings that we can afford to lose in Christchurch.” Fire investigators would write a full report on their findings which will be handed over to police. The hall was used by community groups and was leased by the Kereru Sports and Cultural Club. Club president Brian Mutu said some members managed to get into the hall to get some of the club’s equipment out before it was


closed up. “We’ve lost a lot of memorabilia,” he said. “Mostly photos at this stage.” The club had some photos of New Zealand ladies softball teams, but he had not had a chance to see whether they had been destroyed. The club would be without its club rooms while it waits for the city council to decide what to do with the hall, Mr Mutu said.

“It’s a loss to the whole community.” City council parks unit manager Andrew Rutledge said a city council contractor boarded up the building on Thursday to make it safe. “A structural assessment will be carried out to determine the extent of the damage.” Police would not comment on where the scooter was stolen from.

CAR FIRE SUSPICIOUS Firefighters from Addington were called to Worsleys Rd, Cashmere, last week where a car was on fire. The call out came at about 4.30am on Wednesday. Fire communications shift manager Tim Reynolds said the incident was being treated as suspicious and was passed onto police and a fire investigator. Addington fire fighters were also called to Lyttelton St, Somerfield, just before 2pm where there was a small fire in a garden. Mr Reynolds said it appeared to have been started by a cigarette. He said it was relatively minor and the call out took about seven minutes. RUBBISH BINS BURNT Two rubbish bins were set on fire last Wednesday on Coronation St, Spreydon. A fire crew from Addington was called out at 6.47pm which took about 20 min to extinguish. The fire was being treated as suspicious, and was referred onto police.

Veterinary practice

Socks saga When owner Poppy saw her 5 month old Rottweiler cross puppy Marlo chewing one of her socks, she knew she needed to get it off her in case it was swallowed. Unfortunately Marlo had better ideas, quickly gulping down the sock before it could be retrieved. There then followed an anxious two hour wait to see if Marlo would vomit the sock back up. When this didn’t happen, Poppy rang us at McMaster and Heap and she was advised to bring Marlo in for an assessment. Once Marlo was checked over it was elected to remove the sock using the practice endoscope rather than waiting to see if it would pass through the gastrointestinal tract.

The endoscope was introduced into the mouth and passed down the oesophagus and into the stomach. Initially the sock could not be seen amongst all the food that had been eaten for breakfast. After some of this food was removed, the black sock was soon located. Special forceps were then passed down inside the endoscope and used to grasp and lock onto the sock.

The risk of leaving the sock to pass through the gastrointestinal tract is that it might not manage to do that. If it is not vomited back up from the stomach, it can potentially get stuck as it leaves the spacious stomach and moves into the narrower small intestine. This can lead to a very sick animal requiring expensive surgery and hospitalisation. During the procedure to remove the ingested sock, Marlo was anaesthetised and placed on intravenous fluids and a blood pressure monitoring system.

Wigram Labour MP Megan Woods It’s now a year into the current term of Parliament so it is timely to take stock of what has been happening in the Wigram electorate over that time. Without doubt one of most pressing issues continues to be how we can best deal with the increased activity in our neighbourhoods. The post-quake westward shift of the city and the completion of stage one of the Southern motorway has put pressure on the roads in our part of the city. A big part of my job has been working with local communities finding ways to make sure that our neighbourhoods are still safe places amongst all the cars. I am really pleased to report that we have had some wins – the turning arrows at the Selwyn and

SOAP BOX Brougham Sts intersection are an example. I think, however, that we need a bigger and bolder vision than these small fixes. I want to see the Government do more than plan roads; I want to see a commitment from the Government to working with the city council for 21st-century public transport for Christchurch. We could remove much of the congestion from our local roads and sides of our streets by providing a rail alternative. We already have rail lines to the north and west of the city that could provide people an

alternative to getting into cars and driving to their work places; work places that are increasingly in our neighbourhoods. In other news, my office also has launched a brand new edition of Growing Up in Wigram. I have put together this booklet as a guide to some of the best things for children in my electorate. If you have suggestions for the book or would like a copy you can pick up a copy from my electorate office. We also have an updated edition of the Over 60s Guide available now. You can phone us on 338 6347.

The sock was then gently removed from the stomach via the oesophagus and mouth as the endoscope was withdrawn. Marlo made a rapid and uneventful recovery from the procedure which was a fantastic result for both owner and patient.

Anglican churches set to merge The Anglican churches of St Martin’s Spreydon and St James Riccarton are about to amalgamate into one parish. Riccarton’s St James was damaged in the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes and services were being held in the church’s Parish Centre. This prompted the amalgamation. St Martin’s, on Lincoln Rd, sustained little damage in the earthquakes and will now host the parish’s morning services. Evening services will continue to be held in the Parish Centre, on Riccarton Rd, so locals can get there easily.

COMBINED: St James Riccarton (left) and St Martin’s Spreydon are about to amalgamate. The amalgamation will be formalised with a blessing by Bishop Victoria Matthews on October 18. A special service will be held at St Martin’s. The Parish mission statement is summed up by ‘Love God, Love People, Make Disciples

of Jesus.’ St Martin’s Reverend John de Senna and St James Reverend Les Memory agreed the amalgamation would provide greater spiritual witness to the community through synergy and the sharing of mutual resources. “Two can do more together

than apart,” Rev Memory said. They believe the new parish will enter a growth cycle marked by fresh vitality, new spiritual energy, and intensified community engagement. They also expected more newcomers and baptisms because of the merge. PICNICS: Somerfield Park has a new community picnic table which was installed on October 3. The Somerfield Residents Association had been planning to build the picnic table since March to sit next to the playground. Fresh Choice Barrington donated $500 and the Rotary Club of Garden City pledged $2500 toward it. Cashmere High School and Southern Institute of Technology students built it and a community event was held to celebrate its installation.

HALSWELL CAFE AWARDED Halswell’s White House Black has been commended in the Christchurch Civic Trust Awards for adapting and retaining a heritage building. The Halswell Rd building was once a rural homestead and has been turned into a cafe. The award will be presented at a Christchurch Civic Trust event at Knox Church Lounge tomorrow. INTERSECTION CLOSED The Devon and Colombo Sts intersection in Sydenham is closed while Stronger Christchurch Infrastructure Rebuild Team repairs damaged sections of the wastewater main. The work will be done in two stages and is expected to be completed in about three weeks. The second stage will see part of Beaumont St closed between Colombo and Shelley Sts. NIUE LANGUAGE WORKSHOP Christchurch’s Niuean community is preparing to share an important part of their culture and creative arts with a Lologo Tuai (Niue Traditional Chants) Workshop on Friday. The workshop is part of Niue Language Week, and will be an opportunity for the Niuean community to learn chants which have ties to the ancient traditions of their homeland. The workshop is funded by a Creative New Zealand grant, and will take place at the Undercroft 101, James Hight Building at Canterbury University.

Julie Moor


Rangi Ruru highlight of 40 years in Rangi Ruru principal Julie Moor has been in education for nearly 40 years. She speaks with Andrew King about the old school yards of Christchurch, why she enjoys teaching and watching her daughter grow up in school.

CHRISTCHURCH GIRL: Julie Moor will finish her 16 year spell at Rangi Ruru Girls’ School at the end of the year saying the time is right for both herself and the school.

Hi Julie. Tell us about yourself, where did you grow up? I grew up in Mt Pleasant. I went to Mt Pleasant School, the old one. In form 2 it changed to the new one. Then I went to Christchurch Girls’ High School, the old one that does not exist anymore. It used to be in Cranmer Square. What was it like growing up in Christchurch? I thought it was wonderful. I do remember playing around in the sea a lot. It was great to grow up here. That’s why I like it so much because it was such a good place to grow up. I am totally committed to Christchurch. Have you lived here all your life? Apart from three years in Geraldine, yes I have. What was your favourite class at school? I don’t know actually. It would depend on the year. I absolutely

loved english. Did you have a favourite teacher? I do remember in year 12 or 13 a young English teacher who did inspire me. The teachers were a sign of the times and I don’t really remember any, apart from that one, who changed my life or made me think differently about what I wanted to do. When did you decide you wanted to get into education? Probably in my last year of high school because in those days you could take out a studentship. You would get paid to go to university with the proviso that you went to teachers college, which was fine because that is what I wanted to do. Where did you study? I studied at Canterbury University. At the old one (laughing), everything I did was in the old one. I think we were the last ones through before it was moved.

Where was your first job? My first teaching job was at Geraldine High School. What was that like? Actually it was great, because it is such a great community. I think it was good for me to leave the city and experience something different. Young people are young people, it does not really matter where you are. Where else have you taught? I was at Linwood College for 20 years. Have you always taught at high schools? Well, years 7-13. Geraldine was years 7-13 and so is Rangi Ruru. Is it a big change to have years 7 and 8 at a high school? I like it. I think it is a really nice model. It is quite seamless. You can give a quite specialised approach to year 7 and 8 but they have the resources of the whole high school. I think it give a really rich experience for the student. Do you have kids yourself? I have a daughter. She went to Rangi. Did have her in a class? I did have her in one or two classes that I was teaching. She is very much her own person and for me it was a huge privilege

teaching because I got to see her throughout her schooling on a daily basis which was a fabulous thing to be a part of. Not many parents get to see that. What is your favourite thing about educating young minds? The complete unpredictability which is kind of a positive and a negative. But no two days are the same when you are working with young people. It is their openness and the vitality, it is really refreshing. What it does is it make you quite optimistic about the future. It is a bumpy time as an adolescent. Sharing that journey with them and seeing them confident and ready to take on the world is a wonderful thing. You have resigned as principal of Rangi Ruru, so where to from here for you?

Yes I have. I think it is the right time for me and the right time for the school. I always say to the girls you have to take those daring leaps in life so I am doing just that. The culture of the school is fantastic and I feel good about that. It is a wonderful place to be. Is being principal of Rangi a high point of your career? Yes, definitely. Nothing can beat this. There are other things out there that I can do but it has been one of the best times of my life. How long have you been at Rangi for? Sixteen years, and I have been principal for 14 of those. I don’t move around much, I get somewhere and then I stay because I like it. Thanks Julie.

Fun Children had fun at the South West Baptist Church’s SHARP Trust holiday programme last week. The trust held a superhero teams themed programme where the children dressed up and were split into S.W.A.T (Super Wacky Action Teams). PLAYGROUND FUN: The Littlies SHARP Trust holiday programme took the children on a mystery playground tour. They went on a double decker bus around the city visiting different playgrounds, with guided activities in every one.

HIGH POINT: Julie Moor said her time at Rangi Ruru Girls’ School has been one of the best times of her life.

Garden award for Woolston Club BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

The Woolston Club’s garden has been recognised as one of the city’s brightest and beautiful. The Hargood St garden received a bronze award in the Business and Institutions category of the Canterbury Horticultural Society Spring Garden Awards. Gardens all over the city were judged as part of the annual awards last weekend on their design and construction, cultivation and maintenance, and the choice of plants and lawns. Michael Marquet has been maintaining the Woolston Club’s garden for 15 years. He said it was great for the garden to have been recognised and he spends a lot of time there. The earthquakes caused a lot of damage to gardens in the east, so people liked to come to Woolston to look and walk around there, he said.

r o o d t u O

“The gardens bring them so much pleasure, it’s like the Botanical Gardens of the east.” He also does other gardening work, but Woolston was his pride and joy. “The Woolston garden is the crown jewels of my job.” Woolston Club general manager Tim Marsh said Mr Marquet had spent a lot of time in the garden. “The club prides itself on that front facade.” The Chateau on the Park on Deans Ave, and The Vineyard at Rossendale, Lansdowne, both received gold awards in the same category.

Where does all the steam go?


That’s an easy one. There isn’t any! Steam is only created when you mix warm air with cold air. Showerdome is the barrier between those two air masses, which means no steam in your shower or bathroom.

Cashmere High School students have put out a good performance at this year’s South Island Secondary Schools Mountain Biking Championships. The Cashmere team came second overall in the schools prize, with Mount Aspiring College taking the top spot. The competition was held over the weekend of October 3-4 in Dunedin. Strong winds affected the competition with the superdownhill having to be cancelled, however the down hill and cross-country races were completed. Cashmere student Fraser Westphall took out the under-15 overall boys title while Max Hides took second place in the under-17 boys title. Fraser won the cross country race and came fourth in the down hill. Max won the down hill race and came fourth in the cross country race. In the under-20 boys category, Cashmere student Rainer Pye came in sixth overall. Christchurch South Intermediate pupil Finn HawkesbyBrowne came second overall in the under-14 boys category after winning the down hill, and coming third in the cross country.

The Halswell United division 2 team went undefeated in their season, meaning they may have done enough to take a spot in the men’s division 1 competition next year. The division 2 side won 12 of their 14 league matches, and tied the remaining two, leaving them on 38 points at the end of the season, seven clear of second placed Christchurch United. Halswell United general manager, Jenn Halliday said: “(The team) won their league, were undefeated, and had two knockout cup wins this year . . . because of the weather, Mainland (Football) organised two extra knockout cups, at the end of the season, and the team won both.” If promoted by Mainland, it will be the first time Halswell can boast a team in each of Christchurch’s three premier men’s footballing competitions. Halswell division 2 player, Mike Dowd said he is proud the club will be able to provide a platform for talented Halswell youth players in the top three Christchurch leagues. Dowd also said he was thankful the Halswell men’s first team had managed to survive relegation from the Mainland Premier League, which allowed the division 2 side to be eligible for promotion.

Use common sense when lighting up MARK THOMAS - FIRE RISK MANAGEMENT OFFICER

Several days of high temperatures and nor’west winds have had fire crews busy with a number of incidents caused by the wind such as power lines down and roofs lifting. This is expected and to a reasonable level unavoidable. What is avoidable is the number of people, in those parts of the district that allow open burning, doing so with branches and clippings on days when the forecast clearly indicates high winds possible. The sinking of heart and the feeling of helplessness that comes when a controlled fire ceases to be controlled can be avoided by simple common sense. High winds forecast – don’t light up. Simple. There were a couple of kitchen fires during the week and as usual in one an occupant required hospital treatment for smoke inhalation. It’s a natural reaction to try and deal with such a fire but the longterm effects, even of mild smoke inhalation, can be quite serious. Shut the door, get out and phone 111. Unless you can easily deal with a stove top fire, this is the sensible reaction. Smoke alarms alerted the occupants of a house in Hinau St, Riccarton, last week at a time when everyone was asleep. This is a ‘good result’ story. Nobody was hurt.

Bus routes are changing

OUT OF CONTROL: Firefighters battle a blaze on State Highway 75 near Barrys Bay last week.

Although having been asleep everyone escaped. The story didn’t reach the media. Yet it was an excellent example of smoke alarms doing their job. Perhaps even saving lives. Every single home in the country should have them.

Netballers take seventh

Cashmere High School came seventh in the New Zealand Secondary Schools Netball Championships in Ashburton last week. The team came up against Auckland’s Epsom Girls’ Grammar School in the play-off for seventh and eighth on Friday, winning 31-30. The tight tussle saw Epsom go into quarter time leading by one, and extending the lead to 18-14 at half time. The second half, however, was all Cashmere with the team winning the third quarter by one to draw the margin back to three. DOMINANT: Sarah A solid Boomer shot all but final quarter one of Cashmere’s performance saw goals in the play-off for seventh and Cashmere pull ahead, winning eighth on Friday. PHOTO: the quarter 7-3 JAMES JUBB and the game. Cashmere goal-shoot Sarah Boomer was commanding in the shooting circle, slotting 30 of the 31 goals the side scored. Cashmere qualified for the national tournament after coming runner up to St Margaret’s College in the South Island Secondary Schools tournament 27-26 last month. But St Margaret’s only managed to come ninth, while the third Christchurch school, St Andrew’s College, came 15th.

Advanced denture and dental care in Halswell with Duchenne Dental.



For the team at Duchenne Dental Services in Halswell, business is all about giving patients the confidence to Eat, Talk and Smile. Duchenne prides itself on providing a professional and yet personal treatment using the latest in technology.



linical Dental Technician, Tristan Pattinson knows that well-fitting, natural-looking and secure dentures can transform the lives of his patients. “It can be a real challenge to get people who wear dentures into the dental chair and ask them to take out their dentures in front of me,” he explains. If they are prepared to take that step, then he and his team will do everything they can to help his patient achieve confidence in their smile. Duchenne Dental take their name from a French neurologist, Guillaume Duchenne, who determined that the most genuine smiles come from true happiness and use the muscles of the eyes as well as the mouth. Their goal is to provide a genuine Duchenne smile for every one of their patients. Like so many areas of modern life, dental technology is changing fast, and at Duchenne Dental Services, they too are moving into the digital

age, with advanced techniques and equipment to scan the mouth and jaw so that all their dentures are individually crafted to give the best possible fit. Digital 3-D printing is state-of-the-art in relation to denture technology, and Duchenne Dental is at the forefront of its use including the use of injection moulding techniques for the best comfort and functionality. As well as crafting new dentures, they also offer denture implants, relines and repairs, sports mouth guards and snoring solutions. Snoring and its effects are a real problem for many New Zealanders. Duchenne provides the Freedom™ sleep apnoea appliance and is designed as a comfortable way to minimise snoring ensuring a peaceful night for wearers and their partners. It is lightweight and practical for home use and travel so that sufferers can sleep on longhaul flights without embarrassment.

As part of the Halswell Dental Centre, Duchenne Dental patients benefit from a whole-team approach. This includes access to dentists and hygienists who can advise on the best way to take care of dentures, and remaining teeth. • To make a time and have a free personal consultation, with Tristan, ring the friendly team on (03) 322 9577 or visit

Physiotherapy Optimises Surgery Recovery started work on strength and balance. We treat many clients recovering from different kinds of surgeries, but particularly orthopaedic operations. These include knee and hip replacements, and back, neck, shoulder, elbow and ankle surgeries. In all cases we find that it’s vital to begin rehabilitation as soon as possible. In some cases surgery can even be delayed with targeted physiotherapy to regain joint movement and strength. This is particularly true for hips and knees where the main issue is osteo-arthritis or wear and tear. Remember, if you don’t rehab correctly, that little limp that isn’t much of a problem now, can lead to pain in other areas later on.

We work in consultation with Christchurch Surgeons, communicating with them regularly. Initially we work to reduce swelling and pain, and then prescribe specific exercises to strengthen surrounding muscles and regain full function. Our two clinics are adjacent to the two YMCA gyms in Christchurch, so that many of our patients take advantage of their facilities to complete a physio-prescribed gym programme as their recovery progresses. If you are scheduled to have surgery, contact us at one of our clinics: Bishopdale 03 360 3606 or Hereford St (opposite the Arts Centre) 03 961 0236. Both have free car parking.

The team at Muscle People Physiotherapy have been treating Cantabrians for a range of physiotherapy concerns over many years, and they know how their clients benefit from their treatment, particularly after surgery. The physiotherapists at Muscle People explain more.


fter surgery it’s not always as simple as having an operation and being back on your feet straight away.’ For many people, recovery after surgery is a slow and sometimes painful journey leaving them feeling frustrated and sometimes a bit lost. For those who seek physiotherapy treatment after orthopaedic surgery in particular, there is hope, as studies show that physiotherapy


speeds up the recovery process and return to full function. Starting this process before surgery can also enhance the outcome and make your time post-operatively much easier to cope with. This is because you have already learnt the exercises you will need to do, have gone over the surgeon’s post operative instructions, ordered any equipment designed to make things easier and, in most cases, already

body of research already exists showing aerobic exercise improves brain function in older adults, but there is a limited amount of literature on how it affects young adults. The Otago researchers, led by Department of Psychology senior lecturer Dr Liana Machado, set out to test the oft-held belief that the brains of young adults in their prime might not benefit as much as older people from regular sustained exercise.

Dr Machado says their “surprising” findings, just published online in the journal Psychophysiology, show that both blood supply to the brain and cognitive functioning appear to benefit from regular exercise in young adults. “This provides compelling evidence that

rather than one single block of exercise,” she says. The researchers also found that body mass index was not a key factor in how well the brain functioned, indicating that regular engagement in physical activity may be more important than body weight. Dr Machado says she had noticed over the years that university students appeared progressively less fit. “I wondered whether we might find significant relationships between exercise levels, oxygen availability in the brain and cognition in the young adults, but no studies had considered this in healthy young adults.” These findings come at a time of increased scientific focus on links between exercise and cognitive health in older adults.

regular exercise, at least five days per week, is a way to sharpen our cognitive ability as young adults – challenging the assumption that living a sedentary lifestyle leads to problems only later in life,” she says. The research also provides potential insight into understanding why people who regularly engage in aerobic exercise tend to function better on a cognitive level. “I think the idea that young people do not have to worry about exercising since they are in their prime developmentally is rapidly being overturned by mounting evidence that even the brains of young adults can benefit from regular exercise,” she says. “The exercise could involve brisk walking or more vigorous activity, and could be made up of a few 10-minute bouts of exercise,

New qualifications for 2016


PIT will be offering students a number of new qualifications in 2016, in response to industry demand and the development of New Zealand certificates and diplomas. Science The New Zealand  Certificate and Diplomas in Applied Science reflect a growing demand for science-based skills in New Zealand. The new programmes are designed to staircase people into a variety of careers that require graduates to think scientifically and analytically in example of a growing industry in Canterbury where science-based skills are in demand. For the  New Zealand Animal Management and Veterinary Nursing qualifications (Levels 4, 5 and 6), industry demand has called for a new focus in training. At Level 4, the programme targets  people who want a career working with animals in the welfare, boarding and pet shop areas. Students who intend to train to be a veterinary nurse  assistant  can enter the certificate at Level 5, and later choose to move onto Level 6 to gain their full New Zealand Diploma in Veterinary Nursing qualification. This may soon be required for national registration as a veterinary nurse.  Languages Samoan is the third most commonly spoken

language in New Zealand after English and Maori. The Certificate in Samoan Language (Training Scheme)  recognises  this increasing community need for advanced proficiency in the language. Business In response to industry demand, the Bachelor of Applied Management  programme  has three new majors and associated graduate diplomas, which are pending in New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) approval. These include specialisations in personal financial planning, retail management and supply chain and logistics. Creative Arts The creative industries recognise that design skills are essential for New Zealand’s economic and cultural future, and this is reflected in the graduate profile of the Bachelor of Design’s new specialisations. Pending  NZQA approval, the move from diploma to degree level study in photography and fashion technology will extend students’ practical skills while also exposing them to the academic aspect of creative practices. Employers will benefit from having graduates who have more depth in their portfolios. For more information regarding the new qualifications, check out the website

Toyota Camry to bow out in style LIKE ALL automobile manufacturing facilities in Australia, Toyota will bow out in 2017. However, it will go out in style, a new Camry is rolling off the Altona production line and it is a lot more than just a facelift, the new model has a fresh body style, although it still sits on pretty much the same floorpan and mechanicals. According to Toyota, every panel on the Camry is new except for the roof, it is more rounded and less chunky than before, and is available here in New Zealand in seven variants, including the hybrid which is the subject of this evaluation. I’m due to test conventional models from the new Camry lineup later in the year, but I’ve often said that if I was a hybrid buyer I’d be looking at Camry as opposed to Prius, and nothing has changed my opinion of that. The Camry hybrid is the most conventional of all the hybrids I’ve driven. It looks just like its stablemates and drives little differently. Well, of course, the driver is always aware of the what is happening in terms of propulsion, there are a raft of gauges and displays to let him/her know about the hybrid operation, and if you are astute you can feel the engine cutting in and out, but if you don’t take any of that on board, you could be forgiven for thinking that


you are driving a standard petrolengined 2.5-litre car. The latter is what makes the difference with Camry hybrid against Prius, although the hybrid operation is similar, the Prius with its 1.8-litre petrol engine doesn’t have the punch of Camry. Toyota rates the Camry with 118kW and 213Nm, and if you add in the power from the electric motor (33kW), the Camry feels quite lively and very torquey. As mentioned the Camry hybrid is very normal to drive, of course it wants to drive in electric mode all of the time, but such are the throttle demands that doesn’t happen constantly. During my time with the test car I selected electric vehicle mode often but seldom got further than 100m before the engine flicked on. I even tried to demonstrate electric mode to a young friend of my daughter, we were four-up in the Camry and I was trying to be gentle but only travelled a few metres before the engine cut in. That’s not a negative thing, I’m a great believer in hybrids, and there are many advantages, lower emissions

Price: Toyota Camry Atara S hybrid, $51,690. Dimensions: Length,4850mm; width, 1825mm; height, 1470mm. Configuration: Four-cylinder transverse, front-wheel-drive, 2494cc, 118kW, 213Nm, continuously variable automatic, 1575kg. Performance: 0-100km/h, 8.1sec.

TOYOTA CAMRY HYBRID: Fresh body style. and respectable fuel usage figures, to name just a couple. Toyota rates the hybrid system with a 5.2-litre per 100km (54mpg) combined cycle average. At the end of four days with the test car I returned it to the dealership showing an average of 6.8l/100km (41mpg). These are good figures for a big car, and one that weighs in at 1575kg, and if you take into account I drove the Camry briskly during testing time, it feels strong beneath the accelerator and handles delightfully. A lot of the latter is due to the position of the batteries and the weight they generate. They sit low in the car and contribute to a low centre of gravity. In a corner the Camry hybrid stays flat without

much body movement. It can be pushed hard into a corner and the balance stays neutral. The tyres (215/55 x 17in Bridgestone Turanza), have high grip levels and provide solid information to the steering wheel. Turn-in is direct, while suspension movement easily arrests mid-corner bumps and deviations. All of the time the fully independent four-strut system is providing an absorbent ride, the occupants are treated to spring and damper rates well engineered for the rough nature of down under roads and the comfort levels we all expect from the large Australian car. The test car was badged Atara S and it sits midway in the specification level at $51,690, bearing

in mind that the hybrid model lands in only three spec levels as opposed to four in the non-hybrid line-up. Nevertheless, the Atara S is loaded with goodies. I’ve mentioned the comprehensive display graphics projected through a large central screen. There are also more graphics on the dash panel proper to encourage a gentle approach to throttle movement. The only notable exclusion with the Atara S would be satellite navigation, but I’m a firm believer in after-market GPS devices, so that needn’t be a consideration. It was good to be reacquainted with Camry, especially the ecofriendly version. I don’t think this is the last hurrah from Toyota with Camry, I’m sure as 2017 approaches there will be some last-gasp surprises within the line-up. But in the interim, the flash new body style and revisions have made it an even more desirable drive, the Camry is a smart piece of work.
